Through a series of vignettes, thoughts and recollections, Gunn (Piece for Person and Ghetto Blaster, Green Screen) uses her distinctive humour and fierce social critique to challenge our preconceived ideas of what is appropriate for children, in a collaboration with Pol Heyvaert from internationally renowned Belgian company CAMPO.
This bewildering, bold and provocative performance piece is guaranteed to spark debate. It asks us to imagine a woman who works with children, but has a secret she’s incredibly ashamed of. Now, imagine a man who works with children, but says and does things in private he wouldn’t want to be made public. Fortunately, there are regulations in place to protect children from dark emotions and the vulnerability of reality.
